Excel Fu: Excel for Researchers - Expression of Interest - LTU Bundoora - Thu Oct 24 2019
ABOUT THE SESSION:
Data rarely comes in the form you require. Often it is messy. Sometimes it is incomplete. And sometimes there's too much of it. Frequently, it has errors. We'll use one of the most widespread data wrangling tools, Microsoft Excel, to import, sort, filter, copy, protect, transform, summarise, merge, and visualise research data.
While aimed at novice Excel users, most attendees will walk away with new tricks to work more efficiently with their research data.
Please note that places are limited.
EoI applications close on Thu Oct 10 2019 and applicants will be notified by Thu Oct 10 2019 whether their application has been successful.

- Find, import and ‘clean up’ messy research data
- Organise, format and name your data in Excel
- Analyse your data (answer research questions)
- Interpret your data (filtering, conditional formatting)
- Perform calculations on your data (max, min, average)
- Extract significant findings from your data (pivot tables)
- Manipulate your data (data conversion, dates and times)
